165 points and that's a percent and a half. coca-cola company is the biggest loser within the dow and the nasdaq is trading to the down side by almost 1.5%. let's show you the vix, the volatility index, to give you a flavor of what's going on today, it is up at the 20 mark. trish, what's happening on the floor? >> oh, big, big, big day, melissa. part of this is the story of the economy. yesterday we got negative news on the housing front and the consumer front and that's compounded today by the news of jobless claims. so a lot of worries about the economy and whether, in fact, we are on the road to recovery that the market had anticipated. so you're seeing a triple digit sell-off. financials, i want to point out, they are lower in part because of the greece situation, and also because fed chief ben bernanke is saying that they're going to look into the swaps specifically with goldman. so that is an issue, of course, as well. i want to bring in brian shactman who has been down here all day and tracking all of this action.
